Coffee Tales: Nick Vink

'I don’t want to be famous, but if I were I'd hope it’s because I've become the World Latte Art Champion.'

 

He may not have won the title of World Latte Art Champion just yet, but seeing as he's the Dutch Latte Art Champion, Nick Vink's not far off realising his dreams. We shared a coffee with the talented barista and restaurant owner to find out more...

FIRST EXPERIENCE OF COFFEE?

My first experience was 5 years ago — I was watching some videos on Youtube and latte art passed by. I was really surprised by what you could do with milk, so I start trying it myself.
 
FAVOURITE PLACE TO HAVE A COFFEE?

Just at home. It’s always the most relaxing moment of the week.

ESPRESSO OR FILTER?

Espresso.

PREFERRED BREWING METHOD?

Aeropress.

AFRICAN OR SOUTH AMERICAN?

South American.

HOW MANY CUPS PER DAY?

Easily 10, on some days even more.

DAIRY OR NON-DAIRY?

Started with dairy because of my work with latte art. But now I only use non-dairy.

COCKTAIL OF CHOICE?

Moscow Mule.

FAVOURITE WINE AND WHY?

It’s beer for me, not wine ;) And I'd choose I.P.A.

FAVOURITE PLACE FOR BRUNCH?

H32 in Oss.

GIVEN THE CHOICE OF ANYONE IN THE WORLD, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE AS A DINNER GUEST?

Donald Trump.

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR FINAL SUPPER?

Thai green curry...I'd stink in my funeral haha.

HOLIDAY DESTINATION OF CHOICE?

New Zealand.

BIKE OR CAR?

Car.

FAVOURITE QUOTE?

'Never stop trying.'

THREE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU

Energetic. Happy. Open-minded.

IF WE WERE TO LOOK INTO YOUR WEB HISTORY, WHAT WOULD WE LEARN ABOUT YOU THAT MOST PEOPLE WOULDN’T KNOW?

Nothing much. Because I want to improve in every way possible, I'm always looking for new things for my restaurant, methods of improving my latte art and new beers.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE FAMOUS, AND IF SO, WHAT FOR?

I don’t want to be famous, but if I were I'd hope it’s because I've become the World Latte Art Champion.

WHO OR WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST LOVE?

Amber van Essen.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST FEAR?

That I die young and cannot live my life like I imagined I would do.

FAVOURITE BOOK AND WHY?

Too busy to read books.

Nick will be impressing visitors to this year's festival during his takeovers on the Latte Art Live stage. Buy a Saturday ticket now so you don't miss out.
